CUMTD says it's been getting letters asking for service near the Stone Creek Subdivision in Urbana. That's why, if annexation is approved, they'll probably get more services than the other two. All three are likely to get bus service for schools. They're all areas on the outskirts of the towns which have seen some growth over the last few years.
It's CUMTD's policy to continue expanding its own borders as the community expands. Not only because some people in those neighborhoods are asking for bus service, but more so people are pitching in for the costs of the benefits.
That means, if the board approves annexation, property taxes in those areas would go up. They'll take a vote at the end of next month. Public hearings will be held before then.
